Mom headed to trial in son's death

ALLENTOWN, Pa. - An Allentown mom charged with beating her young son to death is heading to trial.

Jessica Adams, 24, waived her preliminary hearing Thursday morning.  Police said they found Adams' 5-year-old son unconscious and not breathing at her home on North 12th street last November.

He was taken to the hospital, where he died the next day.  The coroner says the boy died from multiple blunt force injuries, and police say Adams was the one who beat him.  She was charged with homicide last month.
